SAN DIEGO (AP) — Ranger Suárez’s scoreless streak ended at 32 innings but he was otherwise brilliant through eight innings and Alec Bohm homered and drove in four runs for the Philadelphia Phillies, who beat the San Diego Padres 5-1 Saturday night to win the weekend series.

Suárez’s scoreless streak, the longest in the majors this season and of his career, ended when he allowed Eguy Rosario’s two-out home run in the eighth inning. Suárez (5-0) allowed just three hits and struck out eight with no walks to win his fifth straight start.

Suárez threw 96 pitches. Jeff Hoffman struck out the side in the ninth.

The Padres have been punchless in the first two games of this series after blowing a 9-4 lead at Colorado on Thursday and losing 10-9. They’ve lost three straight for the second time in a span of 10 games.

Bohm extended his hitting streak to 11 games. He hit a two-run homer to left field with two outs in the first, his fourth, and added a two-run single in the three-run fifth. Both were off Dylan Cease.

It was the Phillies’ sixth homer in the first two games of this series.

Cease (3-2) loaded the bases with two outs in the fifth and walked Bryce Harper to make it 3-0. Bohm followed with a two-run single to right. Trea Turner had three hits and scored on both of Bohm’s big hits.

Cease allowed five runs and six hits in six innings, struck out five and walked three.


Phillies RHP Taijuan Walker, on the injured list since spring training with right shoulder soreness, is scheduled to make his season debut in the series finale on Sunday opposite Padres RHP Michael King (2-2, 4.11 ERA).
